Sweet Little Miss Wifely Steps has an ongoing blog carnival entitled “Show of Hearts” where readers and friends are invited to post anything heart-related.
My entry of course has something to do with the just-concluded V-day. The bf was by his usual thoughtful self and made it in time for our Valentine celebration across time zones. Thanks to the magic of online shopping; never really gave this thing a thought, until My Sweet told me to check out a few Filipino-owned sites and how their prices compared against each other. He finally settles for makulay.com because their items were reasonable, and of course they were able to actually deliver the items to my doorstep!
The heart-shaped strawberry buttercream cake from Goldilock’s was a revelation. Never really tasted this cake before and we loved it… the mild strawberry flavor blending well with the creamy center.
Hmm, I wonder why the bouquet of flowers I got didn’t contain a single rose, but I was certainly glad to find a number of edible roses on the icing of the cake! 😛
Up next was the heart-shaped jewelry box in velvet which had a number of those delectable chocolates by Ferrero Rocher, a classic favorite. The box is lovely, but it might be too big to keep my jewelry (unless I have stones as big as Ferreros!) Will certainly find good use for it, perhaps to keep my accessories and mementos.
Thank you also… I get to hug a grizzly bear from Russ! <3
Before I can say “Happy Birthday, Amor!’ the kind folks of GeiserMaclang also sent me a bouquet of white roses and a couple of white hugging bears from one of their clients, Flowers Express. They’ve sent me the flowers a few times before and I must say I love their dainty arrangements. The flowers even come with a vase!
Online shopping is alive and well and definitely kicking! More on this subject in another post.
Thanks to the one I love and friends who care, an anti-Valentine girl like me can still enjoy V-day after all!!
